Nordic Condos in North York, Toronto
Jante is the Scandinavian philosophy of collective wellbeing. The idea that everyone has their own role to play in the greater social mosaic, and that those roles are all equally important. Nordic Condos approaches with exactly the same philosophy. Using extensive green space, thoughtfully designed amenities, innovative architecture, and integrated connectivity to everything around, we’ve designed a community where every element contributes to creating the perfect home.
Nordic Condos’ contemporary 12-storey building sits comfortably within the context of the Wilson Heights neighbourhood. The crisp white façade accentuated with spacious balconies, terraces and expansive double-glazed windows, a feature that not only offers timeless beauty and abundant natural light, but improves energy efficiency, ensuring a healthier environment inside and out. The north side of the building features a stepped design, creating a series of terraces where residents can enjoy easy access to nature, while three communal courtyards offer even more opportunities to get outdoors. Human-centred architecture. Modern design. One look is all it takes to fall in love.
Nordic Condos offers a whole host of sustainable initiatives aiming to reduce the negative impact of development, and create a mutually beneficial relationship that strengthens the community and the environment. An innovative geothermal heating and cooling system uses about 40% less energy than a traditional HVAC system, and produces 70% less greenhouse gas, saving over 5 million litres of water every year (and offering residents predictable monthly maintenance fees). Low profile green roofs help reduce the heat island effect and improve air quality. And advanced energy efficient systems like circadian rhythm lighting and smart thermostats with real-time suite energy dashboards make sustainability an integrated part of everyday living.
Nordic Condos, designed to balance the urban environment and foster a sense of wellbeing and good health. Over 50 trees join the canopy of greenery on site, offering shade from summer sunshine or a rainbow of colours come fall, and ensuring the space will offer a natural refuge for decades to come.
A series of green roofs and landscaped courtyards provide beautiful sight lines from every perspective, and soften the sounds of the city, letting nature take centre stage. And nearly 11,000 square feet of outdoor space offer a direct connection to the environment from almost anywhere on site, transforming outdoor amenities into an extension of the home. Research shows that spending time in nature can reduce stress, boost creativity, and increase happiness, so we’ve brought nature right to your door. Breathe it in.
